My Manifesto/Motto

I wrote a while back about being in a funk and at last I'm coming out of it, but at the time I thought about writing a manifesto having been inspired by Holstee's. Instead I've been mulling it over, and I think instead of a manifesto, it's more of a purpose statement or a guiding principle. And as the weather chills here in NYC and fall approaches, hearts start to turn towards home anyway and I think that's where my manifesto will be based. What's most important to me besides my relationship with God, is my family so . . .

"If it wastes my time, get outta line!" 

That is what's going to guide me going forward. It's my motto! I am taking no prisoners - if you are wasting my time you are CUT OFF!

A friend of mine recently said something so timely, "I've figured out that keeping my family's schedule as simple as possible is best." 


I am taking that approach. 

I cannot tell you how many people/organizations etc. have been disrespectful of my family's precious time. It's so crazy that in an age of smartphones and social media that we disrespect each other's time so much. How hard is to send a text to let someone know you're running late or can't make an appointment? Seriously!

This motto goes hand in hand with what I had posted before about not chasing after people. Since adapting that mentality I've already started reaping the benefits of living a more simplified life. 

As I've shared before
"If it is important to you, you will find a way. If it is not, you will find an excuse." -  LovableWords 
Again . . . 

 Any of my readers adopting a manifesto/motto this fall?


  1. I don't have a manifesto but i should probably get one! i like yours very much! good luck. and good for you for taking care of you and your time!

  2. I need one! This is great.. I am so going to steal that quote. Sooo good!
